Politicians in California keep trying to push through a ban on the sale of violent video games to minors -- despite the fact that every state that's passed a ban has seen it get tossed out by the courts. The latest setback for California came in February, when an appeals court upheld a lower court's ruling that the ban was unconstitutional, but the state's not finished. Its attorney general, Jerry Brown, now says he's asked the Supreme Court to hear another appeal of the original ruling. It's fairly annoying that Brown sees fit to waste even more taxpayer money (especially given the state's budget woes), but perhaps the only saving grace is that the Supreme Court might take the case and reaffirm what other courts have said all along, and finally put a stop to some of this political grandstanding.
